Yes i know. but only 2 really give you the aero look. TrueTransparency and Windowsblinds. Neither of them have a skin that looks exactly like Vista's.
I have used WB for a long time. None of the skins are a exact duplicate of Aero. True Transparency has something close. But it doesnt have that exact look to it either. The only reason why i think it is Vista. The buttons.
No skin i have seen for either of the XP items duplicate teh buttons exactly. This looks spot on for the look of Vista.
Yes i have done many things to get my XP to look exactly like Vista but everything fails. there is no exact skin that matches vista that i have found yet.
I bow to your expertise.
I don't use any schemes (audio or visual) on my XP boot. It's vanilla, straight off the CD, XP in all its gaudy glory, though I disliked the look of XP so much when I got it, that I "reverted" it to classic W98/ME on my previous PC, which is still the way it looks on there.
I only know that information cause i have tested all the different apps myself. I get asked those questions a lot about how to change the look of XP so it pays to know. Right now i have a Royale Remix theme that Microsoft just released.
